Lighthouse Brewing- Poseidon Pale Ale


Lighthouse Brewing- Poseidon Pale Ale Review

Lighthouse Brewing, with the help of Hired Guns Creative, has done an extensive rebrand, including redesigning all their can labels. They have also released a new pale ale, planned to be a core beer, called Poseidon. At one time, Lighthouse’s Tasman Ale was a go-to session ale in the Victoria area. Will Poseidon prove to be a worthy successor?

The Poseidon Pale Ale is golden, highly carbonated, and has a large off-white head that lingers. There is a pronounced aroma that is complex and pleasant, predominately of tangerine and tropical fruits but also with floral, golden honey, and pine hints. There is also a cracker and bread maltiness in the background. This beer is full-bodied. The flavour has mild hoppiness, leaning towards the tropical fruits, with a clean fermented soda cracker-like maltiness. The finish is long with mild bitterness.

Poseidon is just what you look for in a pale ale with lots of character that makes you want another.
